All the lockmasters were happy; nature was watering their plants again. Torrential rains at lock three of seven. Thunderbolt and Ceci Kay pulled over. Do we keep going? (it is only noon). Oh well, we are wet anyway. On to Campbellford and as before, the rain stopped just as we got to town.
A town dock wall with electricity, water and Wi-Fi, it is a real find. The town has a “world famous” bakery with cream puffs and butter tarts, a cheese factory, and a very large replica of a Toonie, the two-dollar Canadian coin. The clouds parted long enough for us to see the sights but they did not part long enough for us to attend the county fair.
You would think that with all this rain the boat would be forever free of spiders but it seems to just drive them into smaller and smaller crevices.
The next morning, partial showers and six more locks, brought us to Hastings. The town has a grocery store, a liquor store and a hardware store, all in walking distance. We never pass up a hardware store. In this one we found the motion sensor lights to put on the out side of the boat to dissuade critters from joining us.
